Steve is new to the town of Rexburg, Idaho. With only eight dollars to his name, he faces the realization that he and his wife are temporarily homeless. When he turns to fellow members of his faith he is taken aback to learn that they are not sympathetic to his plight, nor do they offer to help. The members recall the day the Teton dam broke and the flood raged through. Rexburg had banded together that day, yet there is no help for Steve when he needs food and shelter.

They will stop at nothing to control it. Engaged in a fierce ground battle, Master Chief and Cortana go deep into the Halo Construct to uncover a dark secret; this enigmatic ring world is also the universe's most dangerous weapon.

In this brilliant debut novel, Noe's family - his wife, sons and daughters-in-law - tell what it's like to live with a man touched by God, while struggling against events that cannot be controlled or explained. For when Noe orders his sons to build an ark, he can't tell them where the wood will come from, just that God will provide. When he sends his daughter-in-law out to gather the animals, he can offer no directions, money, or protection. Just faith. But once the rain starts, they all come to realise that the harshest test of their faith is just beginning. The novel is a wickedly funny, wildly imaginative retelling of one of the most dramatic stories known to mankind. At its core it's about a family caught in the midst of an extraordinary event. David Maine infuses this timeless tale with humanity, tension and wit.

Essay-roman om Noah og syndfloden.
Author: Leonard Smith
After the Flood depicts the plight of the descendants of Noah beginning around the time of his death. The central character is Abraham who follows a lifestyle and attitude exemplary beyond that of his contemporaries. It's important that of all the characters mentioned in the Bible, Abraham (originally named Abram) is unquestionably the one who has the most universal reverence. Abraham is still living in Ur of the Chaldees. But, he moves to Haran from his homeland. He lives and prospers there for many years and, then, ultimately completes his journey to Canaan. The novel suggests that the wanderings from Ur to Canaan were driven by a combination of strategic military objectives by Abraham's fellow Hebrews, and God's intention to found a theocracy of non-pagan people worthy of his government. After the Flood depicts the life of the Hebrews from the apparent start of Abraham's interaction with God until the probable first realization by Abraham that he had failed to fulfill God's objective to perfection. The story concludes at the time of the expulsion of his first son, Ishmael, and Ishmael's mother, Hagar, from the community. This sad event has a past and continuing affect on world affairs.
